Abstract: First conclusive results of an ongoing international RILEM test programme are presented where performance predictions of different laboratories based on their own test methods and models are compared. Slabs and technical data of two motorway test sections were provided to 16 laboratories participating on a voluntary basis. This paper focuses on rutting, fatigue, thermal cracking and surface distress predictions for a period of 10 years. It was found that the predicted rut depths varied over a wide range. Compared to rutting, the fatigue predictions were in better agreement. However, the conclusion that fatigue models are more accurate could not be drawn. For both rutting and fatigue prediction, none of the laboratories followed a procedure and methodology which was directly comparable. This made clear that further exchange and co-ordination of research efforts is extremely necessary.
